Serves: 36
 
This recipe makes 3 dozen cookies.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 (4 ounce) package instant banana cream pudding mix, dry
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 cups milk chocolate chips, separated
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugars until well mixed.
  3. Beat in the dry pudding mix.
  4. Beat in the eggs, vanilla and mashed banana.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and baking powder. Stir to mix.
  6. Combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Beat just until mixed.
  7. Stir in 2 cups of the milk chocolate chips. Set the last cup of chocolate chips aside for later.
  8. Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat and scoop cookies into 2-tablespoon sizes (you'll get about 3 dozen cookies from this recipe).
  9. Using the remaining cup of chocolate chips, press chocolate chips into the top of each unbaked cookie.
  10. Bake for 15-17 minutes (until bottom of cookies are a light golden brown and tops of cookies still look light and soft). Once cookies are removed from oven, leave them on the cookie sheet to cool for 5 minutes before placing them on a wire rack to cool completely.
